Have you found a weed that you don’t know how to kill?

Consider a trial using herbicides which have a different mode of action or a combination of two different products to get a synergistic effect. 

Do you know which active kills a weed but are unsure which product to buy to get value for your money? 

Consider a trial which compares the level of control obtained from using the same herbicide produced by different companies versus the price of their products.

Recent Trial Work

Taskforce Herbicide

Nearly four years have passed since the initial registration of Taskforce Herbicide. Extensive ground and aerial work has been carried out using this product. Ben has been out assessing much of this work.

European Barberry

European Barberry is a major problem on Marlborough’s dry hill country.  It has proven very difficult to control and is invading large tracts of dry, marginal hill country. 

After 3 years of herbicide trial work, both ground and aerial control, we finally have a breakthrough for ground control. A herbicide has been found that will control European Barberry without killing your grass. We are currently waiting on a 9 month assessment for our aerial trial work. 

If you're interested in the results of these trials or wanting to establish you own trial, give Ben a ring on 021 344045 or (03) 5728847.
